Department of Agricultural Economics

The department initially started in September 2008 with the admission of graduate student majoring in Rural Development, followed by admitting undergraduate students majoring in Agricultural Economics in September 2013.

The department has five faculty members in the field of Economics and one member in the field of Agriculture Education and Extension.

 

Agriculture has a high share in contributing to our GNP. Guilan, as one of the agricultural-based states and with having the largest paddy lands and tea plantations in Iran, plays a major role in country's economic development. One of the key factors in achieving this development is human capital. Human capital (specialized labor force) certainly needs colleges and departments for training. Therefore, the main department strategy is to accept bachelor, master and, hopefully, PhD students in Agricultural Economics and Rural Development as for now and near future.
